Re: Fulton won't open all the way
I have 2 of these fine guns, 1 is an 1898 Grade 3, the other is 1949 lightweight. Both are 12 guage with extraction only and not auto eject. They work the same as yours, being they need a slight opening assistance to allow removal of hulls. With a little practice it becomes second nature and is of no consequence.
Not sure how the auto eject models work but I assume they open far enough to allow the hulls to clear the action. Can anybody out there verify this?
Regardless, these are great guns, enjoy!
